Graphing Exercise SWBAT: USE PROPER GRAPHING TECHNIQUES TO GRAPH DATA SWBAT: INTERPRET DATA FROM A GRAPH AND DRAW CONCLUSIONS ABOUT THE INFORMATION Instructions Get a blank piece of paper. Fold it Hotdog and Hamburger to make even quarters. Mark the lines. Continued… Number each quarter of the paper starting in the top left moving clockwise. 1 2 4 3 Label each section as follows: 1. Data Chart 2. Distance Vs. Time 3. Speed Vs. Time 4. Acceleration Vs. Time Time (S) Distance (m) Time (S) Distance (m) 1 0 16 10 2 1 17 12 Section 1 3 2 Copy the data from the slide 18 into a chart 14 in this 4 3 section of your paper. It should 19 have 2 16 columns. One 4 one for distance. 20 19 for5 time and 6 5 21 21 7 6 22 25 8 7 23 25 9 7 24 24 10 7 25 22 11 7 26 22 12 8 27 22 13 9 28 20 14 10 29 18 15 10 30 17 Section 2 Draw a graph that relates distance and time. Remember we are controlling what time we take measurements and the recording the response. (DRY MIX) Distance in meters Time in Seconds Section 3 Remember that speed=distance/time. And that we only need to be concerned with the change in time when we look at speed. Calculate the speed the object is traveling each second and make a graph that relates speed (which we are calculating) and time (which we are choosing)(DRY MIX). Section 4 Acceleration is changes in velocity. Using the previous graph as a data source, draw a graph that relates acceleration (calculated) and time (which was chosen.

Answer the following questions: 1. What will a Distance Vs. Time graph look like if the object is standing still? 2. What is happening if the same line was vertical? 3. describe the lines on an Acceleration Vs. Time Graph when the object is sitting still. Moving at a constant speed of 3 m/s. 4. Which direction will the line go in a Distance Vs. Time graph if the object is slowing down but still traveling forward?
